The Right Way!

Weight is a struggle for a lot of people in this world. Some find it difficult to gain weight, some face difficulties losing weight while a select few, blessed souls, do not have to think about it at all. I am one of the people from the second category – I have struggled with losing weight. In fact I do not struggle as much with losing weight as much as with maintaining the weight loss.

It took me years and years altogether of trying all sorts of diets to know that diets do not work. I was able to lose the weight when I was strict about a diet but once I let go, the weight came back, sometimes multiplied. This phenomenon is known as yo-yo dieting. And I have tried at least a dozen of the diets from Atkins to South Beach to Low Carbohydrates and High Protein diets. Each one promised weight loss that I was desperately looking for but all of these diets were difficult to follow especially over a long period of time.

This whole process battered my soul and my determination to live a healthy life. It took years to finally reach at this point where I am not running after weight loss or diets. I am looking for a lifestyle to adopt which will help me reach my weight and health goals. And I am done with “diets” per say.

On the recommendation of an Ayurvedic doctor, after Nadi Pariksha, I started taking a glass of warm water with a teaspoonful of honey. It has helped me feel light and energetic while also making subtle changes to the physical body. Since the changes are coming at a slower pace and in a balanced way, I feel this time the changes will last!

I remember feeling tired and weak after a week or two into a diet since calorie intake used to be low, I used to have bouts of depression, hunger pangs and guilt. But now I feel strong and energetic. And the honey I use for this Honey Diet of mine is one other than the one and only Dabur Honey.

I have used Dabur Honey for years. Earlier I used to use for topical use only but then one of my friend introduced me to Honey sandwich. I loved applying it to my toasts and parathas and these days I keep finding new ways to incorporate honey into my diet. Overall, I never exceed one tablespoon per day because a little bit of honey is good enough to enhance the taste and nutritional value of a meal.

If you are not sure about how to incorporate Honey into your diet, I would suggest checking out Dabur Honey’s website since they have plenty of tips and tricks to add honey to various food items. They have recently launched the “Honey Diet” which will help anyone looking to become healthier and slimmer while eating balanced and nutritious meals. I love their ideas and plan to implement them in different ways.

I have always loved honey and now after knowing the health benefits, I love it even more!

From to Myntra App – Now #ItsPersonal

This world is changing every second, new information and ideas are being churned out at the speed of light. Some people try to keep up with this fast pace world, some decide to stay behind while some run ahead and become pioneers. And one of the examples of pioneers I came across recently is the online fashion retailer, Myntra.

They shut down their website services on the 15th of May, 2015 to run their business solely through the Myntra App. It is a step that has revolutionized the Indian online shopping scene. Of course if you do not stay on top of the happenings in the online world, this may have not caught your attention but is is one of the best things to have happened for online shopping enthusiasts.

I am not lazy but having to switch on my laptop for online shopping and then clicking links to open products and look around was sometimes too much work especially since I could only do it at home. But now I can be in any corner of the world and just with my smartphone in one hand, I have access to everything I might need. And statistics given by Myntra indicate that the majority of the traffic they receive and their sales are generated through mobile. So I am guessing I am a part of the majority!

I love trying new things so obviously I downloaded the Myntra App as soon as I learned about it. I am not an App-novice (totally made up that term, I’m cool like that) so it was not totally new for me but having so many products and options in my little phone felt exciting.

And during a Myntra Quest contest held yesterday on their App, I was able to scroll through the Myntra App to get a feel of it. It was pleasing to the eye, easy to navigate through and I loved that they had still kept their style of product display – each product had a few shots to scroll and see.

Going from online to App only is a bold move and it will time a bit of time for all of us to get used to having only the App version but I am convinced that shopping through Phone Apps is every bit as exciting and productive, if not more than, shopping through online stores/websites. I experienced a couple of App crashes while peeking through it but I am sure, they will sort things out and be on to of their game. Myntra App is available for all kinds of smartphones – Windows, iPhone and Android devices!

The App for all your needs? #MyAirtelApp

Back when I was growing up, computers were owned by the elite only. We never really got to touch them and I had no idea what internet was until I passed out of high school. And too was because I had just started reading newspapers and everything was about Y2k (which turned out to be more like why 2k!) Soon our lives were filled with computers and laptops. But there is only so much a heavy device can offer so someone invented smartphones. Now we could do anything using our tiny devices. We could make a call, message, browse the internet, chat with friends online and play games. Now it is the era of apps and there are hundreds of thousands of them around. They promise to make life easier by 200% and after installing the MyAirtelApp, I couldn’t agree more!

It was 12 years ago when I got my first cellphone. Back then cellphones were big and smartphones were still not conceived. But I got amazing service from Airtel for a long time. Good connectivity and coverage of Airtel have always been my favorite trait in their service. Many of my family members also swear by Airtel. And this app is going to increase their hold in the market. This is not the first app by Airtel, this is the new and improved version to cover all the needs of Airtel customers. I love how this App cuts the time it took to doing basic services (I am one of those people who are not a huge of having long conversations with Customer Care Executives) Of course Apps are also at your tips so you can get everything you need at the touch of the button, at your own convenience!

The Airtel App promises to do much more than just helping you do a quick online recharge. It also gives the chance to – see service usage, buy new services, cancel services, buy products, recharge DTH and also place service requests. Basically, you may not need to set your foot into the (physical) Airtel office again as the App fulfills all your needs – whether it is for mobile, data or DTH services!

Three of my favorite features of the Airtel App are:

1. I Want To.

Well don’t you love when you are searching for something online, an you get suggestions to complete the query? I usually love that feature! With the Airtel App, your regular actions so you do not need to search around!

2. Deals and Discounts.

This is a no-brainer actually, I love a good deal and getting 100% talktime, cashbacks etc. is so much fun (for me and my wallet). The mobile and data services are essential for my everyday existence and sanity so it is obvious that getting some deals on the way will be exciting! It says, shake the phone to get exclusive offers. I find that so much fun to do!

3. Secure Payments.

This might be the most important feature for me but for some reason came in third to my mind (eek!) But having the information secure and ready to be used at my convenience, is the best thing ever. I was a bit hesitant at first about doing this with apps but I trust the services I am receiving from Airtel!

So that is all I have to say for the Airtel App today. Have you started using it?

Note: The MyAirtelApp is currently available for Android devices only, the iOS version is still on its way!

I have a huge collection of inspirational books in my home and I am always in search of new ones to read. So one day I was searching for a book that changed people’s lives and a few people had mentioned this book. I ordered it on Flipkart instantly. It arrived 3 days later and I could not put it down once I started reading!

Just to tell you how much this book has impacted my life, let me tell you that I am from a middle class family, married to someone from the same class. No one has ever taught us to dream higher than what we think is possible. In fact our families are one of those who dread aiming too high to save from heartbreaks and disappointments. I also picked up the same thinking about dreams.

My belief for long time was that goals are what we set (and they should always be achievable) and dreams are what we just dream about, something that will never happen unless a miracle occurs. And yeah, I was not a huge believer in miracles either.

This book has taught me that I do anything I want. I can dream as high as I want and strive to realize them.

What a relief!

Honestly, I feel so much better knowing that nothing is off limits, even the life of my dreams. The Magic of Thinking Big was written decades ago and must have changed many lives and I am so thankful that I am one of them.

It is my pleasure to share a few gems from the book including Inspirational Quotes!

1. Believe big. The size of your success is determined by the size of you belief.

2. One may get a little sympathy but one doesn’t get respect and loyalty by being a chronic complainer.

3. The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you may have.

4. Instead of thinking – I should have started years ago – start thinking,”I’m going to start now, my best years are ahead of me.”

5. When you believe something is impossible, your mind goes to work for you to prove why. But when you believe, really believe, something can be done, your mind goes to work for you and helps you find ways to do it.

6. Others see in us what we see in ourselves. We receive the kind of treatment we think we deserve.

7. It isn’t so much what you know when you start that matters. It’s what you learn and put to use after you open your doors that counts most.

There are many more motivational quotes in the book but I would leave that for you to read and find out. All I can say is that this of one of the books you want to buy and read if you are into inspirational, self-help, motivational books! I highly recommend “The Magic of Thinking Big – Set your goals high…then exceed them” to anyone who wants to grow by leaps and bounds in life. People who have big dreams!
